Portable Light Dome system, aka 3D mini-dome developed at the KU Leuven and currently used at the Royal Museums of Art and History for the recording of small inscribed objects and sealings, has been used to image the Phoenician-Punic coin collection of the Royal Library of Belgium.
The collection comprises 217 coins in bronze, silver and gold/electrum of Phoenician or Punic type.
The results of this joint effort by the museum and the library will be posted on the website. In the meantime, see the blog entry on the webpages of the IAP7/14 Greater Mesopotamia project at the RMAH for impressions of the recording sessions.
